Just Back On The Island...

Post by SM » Sat Mar 02, 2019 7:53 pm

Well, what a thoroughly predictable outing that was...

First half was fairly balanced, Brentford missed a sitter that their striker just poked wide, but aside from that both teams were evenly matched.

The ball didn’t quite fall after a bit of a mix up between Freeman and Luongo, which would have left either through one on one. 0-0 at half time was a fair reflection on the game.

Brentford started the second half much the stronger, and it looked like Hall misjudged the flight of the ball and left his man racing through on Lumley. Not sure if a penalty as not seen it back yet, but looked a fair call from where we were.

From the moment they went 1-0 up it was game over. We huffed and puffed, but looked so disjointed and genuinely believe we could still be playing now and would be lucky to muster a shot on target - let alone score.

Only player to leave the game with any real credit was Lumley. He was outstanding, and if it wasn’t for him we would have conceded at least another 2 or 3. One of his saves in the second half was just breathtaking.

Big fan of Luongo, but he was very poor today. Pawel typically ran himself into the ground but was hooked off. Eze very ineffective. Wells held ball up well on a few occasions, but far too isolated and absolutely no service to feed off of.

Fans were superb and made plenty of noise. Deserved a lot, lot better.

Real shame to follow up on the superb Leeds performance with such a poor defeat.

Thank you SM much appreciated.

Eze has been disappointing of late. Once we are mathematically safe I hope Schteve experiments and looks for another way with next season in mind.

Thanks for the report SM: sounds like our fans were let down by the team today in the 2nd half. Our recent away performances have just not been good enough which is a disappointment as we seemed like we'd cracked how to be competitive away from home.

I saw the goals on SSN ...

The penalty looked very soft. It seemed to me Hall was pushed in the back, fell and the striker went over him. The second one, what was Lumley doing? It is rarely a good idea for a goalkeeper to leave his area, and all too often it goes badly for him and the team - as yesterday. The game was done when they hit their third in the 5th minute of injury time.

I'm depressed

I have no comments or witticisms to add to this thread. Fact is 1 step forward then back again, it's been that sort of a season with the Angel/Cameron injuries not helping.

Just pha..... aniwall But thanks for the report SM sounds,....depressing.

The reality is that we are going nowhere fast.

We have one player who can turn a game for us. All the others rely on motivation and hard work and effort to combine to make a creditable team and I am not convinced that SMC can do that week on week, If Freeman goes I can only see League One.

Looking ahead all we can hope for is three teams which are in a more parlous state than us next season.

The stadium plans are pie in the sky, There isn't a package which is going to make a big stadium stack up at the Linford Christie venue.

Sorry guys, but it could be time to focus on other things outside of Saturday from 3 until 5.

Unless or until FFP changes we will indeed always be looking for a few clubs that are boracic lint or grossly mismanaged to stay ahead of and avoid relegation. They, in turn, will be doing the same looking at us. It'd just be our luck that by the time they change FFP rules we would no longer have wealthy owners anyway.
On the brighter side we do have a clutch of promising youngsters although SMC doesn't consider them ready yet. Also, if we do drop to League one,we'd have our Saturday 3pm KOs back - no international breaks or TV games to mess up our schedule.

At the time i thought Lumley had little choice, it looked like it was going to be 2 on 1 regardless. It might be that on second viewing the player would have had to go away from goal giving some time for the defence to recover but i wouldn't blame him, he'd already bailed us out once by racing out of his area to clear danger. Lumley stopped yesterday being embarrassing.

I think Eze is getting a bit of harsh criticism. No one was making much impact but everything he did was tidy, his passes found their man and we actually look like we have a semblance of control when he's on the ball. He was generally closed down quickly, in numbers by a well-organised side but i don't think he should stand out for criticism.

I really hope we improve by next weekend. Flying over for the Stoke game with a group of work colleagues so I don't want to get too embarrassed.

Well, its Monday, and I'm still depressed.

Don't agree with the S McClaren slamming. He's an ex England coach which indicates ( I know it's a big ask ) he must know something about football.

so, he joins little old QPR laden with a host of issues....not ideal. From there he's then got what he's got + Hamed and Wells, Cameron and Rangel. That's it, get on with it.

My feeling is next season, FFP behind us ( broadly speaking ) he'll be able to source some players ( not saying talent, just players, ) from the lower leagues at the right money ( peanuts ) and we go from there. Freeman can't be the only £500K find out there?

that's apart it's still aniwall aniwall aniwall aniwall aniwall

I'm not sure I'd describe our state as "parlous". We still have financial backers, and while they're clearly not prepared to throw good money after bad anymore, there's no indication that they're likely to pull the plug entirely either. We've been in significantly worse positions over the last 20 years.

Thanks for the replies. Seems that most of us all saw the game the same way.

From the footage I’ve now seen back, I think the penalty was pretty harsh.

I thought so. Must be pretty dispiriting for the players, they know there aren't many goals in the team so to go one down harshly must knock the wind out of them.
